2017 marks the 20th anniversary of iGive.com and we couldn’t do it without dedicated members, engaged causes, and wonderful store partners.  This year we’re celebrating all of that, but most especially you.  Keep an eye on your inbox for stories each month of members & causes who’ve hit milestones and stores that are going above and beyond!

January, we celebrate Kimberly L. who’s raised over $1,040 since joining iGive in 2007.  Kimberly is currently raising money for RefugeeOne, a Chicago-based resource for refugees fleeing war, terror, and persecution so they may build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance.

We reached out to Kimberly and she shared these thoughts with us:

“Over the years I’ve supported several theatre companies in Chicago with my iGive shopping. I love seeing shows and working on shows and knowing that every little bit helps bring the magic of theatre to life.  Recently, however, some friends and I have begun taking up collections of household goods to donate to RefugeeOne and the last time we collected items, I decided to add the cause to iGive.  Now when I buy a teapot or dish towels to donate to RefugeeOne, the money I spent on those items also generates a donation via iGive! Win-win!!”

Thanks Kimberly, for being part of 20 years of giving with iGive.com.

Kim C. is the first iGive.com Super Shopper of 2017 – our 20th Anniversary!  Kim has chosen to support Lucky Day Animal Rescue of Colorado, and in just one month earned over $180 for this worthy cause.

Lucky Day Animal Rescue of Colorado joined iGive in 2011 and has already earned over $3,000 towards their mission:

We rescue, rehabilitate and find forever homes for animals at risk, regardless of age or breed, issue or amount of time needed that is within our means, in conjunction with providing educational services and spay/neuter programs to the community.

Are you in the market for a new furry friend in 2017? Check out pets that are currently available for adoption here.

As a thank you for all Kim has done on behalf of her cause, iGive has teamed up with Adagio Teas to send her a $100 Gift Card.

Pimental Laboratory Cedars Sinai Medical Center

iGive member Ting C. dropped us a note about a cause that just joined iGive in October, 2016.

“Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common chronic medical conditions. People with IBS have been shown to have specific changes in luminal bacterial contents, the most common of which is small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), a condition whereby coliform bacterial counts in the small bowel become excessive. PLCMC is in the forefront of important research to cure SIBO.

This is why iGive.”

Until recently, a patient diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) was likely to be prescribed antidepressant medication and sent to a psychologist. IBS was thought to be primarily stress–induced. At Cedars-Sinai, we understand that this disease is not “in your head” which is why we are focusing our efforts on identifying the causes.

Based in LA, the Pimentel Laboratory has earned over $150 by its supporters shopping through iGive.
